• 4. Nutrition Education

    • Purpose

      In 2018, Siem Reap, Cambodia, some local primary schools have a meal program that provided by WFP. The food materials that provided meet the minimum requirements in theory. But as far as I can see, it didn't seem enough. Therefore, we will develop a teaching material to prove whether those foods are really enough. Then we provide an effective and simple teaching material of “Nutrition Education” for students and teachers to get the basic information as game in Cambodia.

    • School Meals are provided by World Food Programme (WFP)

      Mention:

      *(1) The criteria for ages 5-19 do not use the same criteria as adults. Care should also be taken to ensure that children do not use the adult criteria for an appropriate weight score of "22".
      As reference, in Japan, infants have the Kaup index (the formula is slightly different from BMI, but the meaning is the same),
      Children use the
      Rohrer Index.
